Consent Type

The District is required to submit a Florida Educational Equity Act Update for the 2019-2020 in compliance with the Florida Educational Equity Act Rules 6A-19.001 - 19.010.

The Florida Educational Equity Act (FEEA) and other federal and state legislation, such as Title IX, Title VI and Vocational Guidelines, prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, disability or marital status against students and employees. The annual Educational Equity Update is a reporting tool that enables the OEEO to monitor and ensure adherence to provisions of the laws, and that educational resources are equally distributed.

The Florida Educational Equity Act (FEEA) became law in June 1984, and the Implementing Rules 6A-19.001 - 19.010 were adopted by the State Board of Education in February 1985. The Equity Act was amended in 1993 to mandate stronger monitoring and enforcement for gender equity in athletics, and again in 2002 to clarify the K-20 responsibilities. Rule 6A-19.004, Interscholastic, Intercollegiate, Club and Intramural Athletics, was amended in September 1994 to reflect the new monitoring and enforcement requirements.
